272. German Language SF at LonCon3 w/ Martin Stricker, Ju Honisch, Oliver Plaschka, Volker Tanger, and Stefanie Zurek

Achtung, deutsche Science-Fiction im Haus!  In our last recording from LonCon3, we present the panel on German Language SF featuring Martin Stricker, Ju Honisch, Oliver Plaschka, Volker Tanger, and Stefanie Zurek!

Here is the panel description:

Recent years have seen several major German SF novels appear in English, including Wolfgang Jeschke’s “The Cusanus Game”, Frank Schatzing’s “The Swarm”, and Julie Zeh’s “The Method”. Are these representative of the contemporary German field? Which other writers (and film-makers, and TV shows) are defining contemporary German SF?

Live from LonCon3 (and very late on our podcast feed):  a panel on Eastern European and Baltic sf/f featuring the lovely voices of Michael Burianyk, Stanislaw Krawczyk, Irena Raseta, Ivaylo Shmilev, and Imants Belogrîvs!

The panel description was as follows:

In the Anglophone World, probably the best-known Eastern European science fiction and fantasy writers are Stanislas Lem and Karel Capek, and in recent years Zoran Zivkovic and Andrzej Sapkowski. But this region has produced many fine writers of fantastika. Which other writers should Anglophone readers be aware of? Our panel of writers and readers from Croatia, Poland, Bulgaria and Latvia will discuss current trends, perennial themes, and future hopes.

We hope you enjoy the episode!
